Notes
  • Thank you for the note Nicolas. As we evolve the Handbook (we're learning a lot) there's sometimes a delay in updating online elements, but the tabs in the assembly instructions should now match the book. Hope the Handbook contents are as useful and effective for you as they are for us!

  • Hello Mike,
    the assembly tabs (slide #7) don't reflect the order as presented on the blue book where one's supposed to download the files (highlighted in red on slide #2).
    Anyway, thank you very much for creating and releasing that material!
